  • Family Fun!

    "Such a wonderful home and location for families with kids. They are able to run around freely in such a big open area and the playground is amazing. We're hoping to go back again."

  • Nice, Relaxing Weekend

    "My family stayed here for the Labor Day weekend and we were not disappointed. We arrived to a very clean and inviting home. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for our family. The beds were comfortable (always an important factor for me) and the view was amazing. The young adult children enjoyed a day on the lake kayaking and paddle boarding while us older folks enjoyed a drive through the mountains and shopping. We will definitely be back !"

  • Charming lake house

    "I had a delightful stay in this cozy and charming lake house. It was very comfortable and had everything that we could possibly need. The view of the lake is spectacular and it was so nice to sit by the water. I would love to stay here again and to experience the lake In summer months. Great place, lots of room. I highly recommend it!"

  • I wish I could live there forever......

    "At the last minute my Fiance and I decided we should go to Georgia for Christmas. This vacation would serve as my introduction to his family and as a much needed time away from the cold of Colorado. My initial conversation with Jack and all that followed were nothing short of convincing that “Tranquility Base” was the house for us during this important vacation. Jack and his wife were so understanding of course, that we wouldn’t have the payment and deposit to them 30 days prior to our stay, because we were booking with less than 30 days left, but we got it to them as fast as regular mail would allow. Check in time at “Tranquility Base “ is normally 1600, The Massey’s were aware that we were traveling from Colorado and due to arrive in Georgia around 11 am on the 25th of December and without having to ask, we were given permission to check in by noon. We found this very accommodating. With the purpose of this vacation causing me much anxiety, I was so pleased to arrive and find this lovely home exactly as we’d expected, very spacious and clean. I can not fail to mention how nicely decorated and well stocked it was with everything you would have at your own home, minus food, but we handled that. We even had treats on the counter, with a very thoughtful welcome note. Taking full advantage of all of the amenities, we had very little idle time. We fished, BBQ’d, made smores, played games, and just enjoyed each other. The visit with my new family was wonderful and I believe that “Tranquility Base” played a very important part in making it so. I’d secretly wished we didn’t have to leave and that this was our home, but we do have future plans to return."

Northeast Mountains Travel Tips

More than Just Georgia on my Mind

Beginning just 50 miles from Atlanta, sight of the state’s main airport, are the mountains of Northeast Georgia. It is easily accessible from I-75 and I-85. Known by the original Cherokee inhabitants as the "Sah-ka-na-ga" or "Great Blue Hills of God," it is better known today as the Blue Ridge Mountains which are also part of the Appalachian Mountains. A significant area of the mountains, some 750,000 acres, comprises the Chattahoochee National Forest. Vacationers choosing Northeast Georgia cabin rentals come for the spectacular scenery and wonderful year-round climate.

Paradise for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Visitors to Northeast Georgia vacation rentals will find themselves in the heart of the great outdoors. The variety of activities is impressive, with endless trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and much more. For water-lovers, go rafting at the Chattahoochee River National Park or enjoy the thrill of tubing at the Cool River Tubing Co. which also offers waterslides for the children. This area was the sight of the America’s first gold rush and visitors can still enter into the thrill of panning for gold and gemstones while learning more about the life in the 1800s. Children will enjoy the Kangaroo Conservation Center, the largest collection of these delightful animals outside of Australia. A not-to-be-missed day out is found at the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway where the vintage and open-air railcars wind along the Toccoa River up into the sister towns of McCaysville, GA and Copperhill, TN.

Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park commemorates battles from the Civil War and visitors will find the museum, seven-mile self-guided driving tour, monuments, hiking and horseback trails make up a wonderful day out. To round off your experience of the Civil War, visit Lookout Mountain Battlefield and the historic Cravens House.

Visiting the Parks--What Do You Need To Know?

Choosing a Northeast Georgia lodging near the magnificent parks and forests makes for a wonderful vacation. Visitors may wish to consider buying a Park and Historic Site Pass which not only provides great value for your money, it also helps preserve the parks and historic sites for future generations. Make sure you are aware of the safety tips provided at the parks. Dress appropriately. If you are planning a hike, make sure you wear the right shoes! In winter, ensure you have planned for the possibility of a shower. No one ever plans to get lost, so be aware of what to do if this happens. If you are planning to camp overnight, don’t bring firewood into the park, use local wood. If you plan to hunt or fish, please ensure you have a hunting and fishing license. Visitors can buy a license from the Wildlife Resources Division of DNR, at Electronic Georgia Licensing (EGAL) system or by calling 1-800-366-2661.

The Best Part of Your Vacation in Georgia’s Northeast Mountains

Where to stay? That’s the question! With such a large variety of towns, each with its own unique character, you will need to decide which of the wide array of Northeast George lodging choices is best for you. Where do you prefer to stay? In a town with restaurants, shops and nightlife on your doorstep, or somewhere more rural, with peaceful nights of solitude and the beauty of nature surrounding you?

Perhaps Helen GA cabin rentals would suit you, with their recreated Alpine charms or historic Dahlonega rentals? Or one of the rural settings available? The choice is yours. One thing is certain; whichever home you choose to make your own for your vacation, you will leave Georgia’s mountains wishing you had just a few more days.
